Jim and I were very close (I did gun work for him when we first moved here in 1999/2000 when he had the gun shop out near Polstons )  I also am Marine and we struck up friendship immediately.  After Margaret passed and Jim toyed with the idea of Alaska we fell out of touch but I did speak to him back in the summer.... that was the last time... I loved him dearly and was saddened to see this obit.  I had no knowledge of his passing... until my wife pointed this out today.... Our prayers are with the entire remaining family and Semper Fidelis to my brother Jim Chaffin.  RIP Marine.

James & Family, You dont know me but I remember when your dad owned and ran his gun shop here in lafayette. I came to know him and Margaret and considered them good friends. I hadnt seen them in many years and wondered where he had moved to. Im so sorry to hear of his passing. He was a good person and to me a friend. God Bless
